THE COUNTY REPRESENTATION.
THE COUNTY REPRESENTATION. LORD EMLYN has, in compliance with a requisition from alarge number ofinfluential ekctors, consented to become the candidate for the seat which will be vacant by the retirement of Mr Bovren, of Llwyn- gwair. His Lordship has issued his address to the constituency, in which he expresses his views on some of the leading public questions, and announces himself to be a Conservative in principle. His Lordship's qualifications and abilities are very highly spoken of by those who know him inti- mately he is o?i every side pronounced to be a young man of great promise, who tag profited by Z, Z, the good example to be found in his own home, 11 and whose career there is every reason to believe will be one of great usefulness. The amount of z_l support which his candidature has, at this early stage, received makes his return certain. The invitation to his Lordship has emanated from so large a body of influential electors that opposition has not even been mentioned, and there is no doubt* that his Lords hip will occupy the seat which was for so many years worthily filled by his noble father. f THE HAVERFORDWEST BOROUGHS. IT is with great pleasure we announce that Mr SeourSeid will offer himself for the Haverfordwest Boroughs at the next election. After the many rumours which have been circulated during the last month respecting the probable retirement of the hon. gentleman, it is,with great satisfaction we are enabled to put an end to all uncertainty in the matter, and to make an authorized statement that he will again solicit the suffrages of the Con- stituency which be has so ably represented for the last sixteen years. When we remember the vexatious opposition to which the hon., gentle- man has been continually subjected, and the zeal and ability with which he has discharged his y Z, dutie. we feel that we cannot sufficiently applaud his determination to stand by the constituency in the present crisis. The bon. gentleman is, one of the most attentive members of the House of Com- mons indeed, if the oflice had the highest emolu- ments attached to it, it could not be filled with a deeper sense of its responsibilities, nor its duties performed with greater regularity and fidelity. The intention of Mr Scourfield to present himself for re-election was made known to the Constituency within the last week, and has been received with the greatest satisfaction. As a parliamentary re- presentative, he was never more popular than at tais moment: his supporters find in his upright conduct the fullest justification for their gallant elTorts in his behalf throughout all his contests, and his political opponents express unreservedly their admiration of his great talents" and industry. The Reform Act will add largely to the ranks of his supporters, and should the Constituency be called upon to pronounce judgment between him and any rival candidate, there is no doubt what- ever he will be returned by a much larger majority than has ever yet sent him to Parliament as the representative of Haverfordwest.

An official com- munication from Mr J. H. Steward, the optician to the National Rifle Association, sets at rest the much-vexed question as to what the maximum temperature really was. Mr Steward states that 'our registering ther- mometer hanging in the shaded part of the tent, and open to the breeze, indicated 100 degrees Fahrenheit,' adding the expression of his own belief that this will be found the highest temperature in the shade ever regis- tered in this country.

James, (solicitor), made an application to the Bench in reference to the Milford Improvement Com- missioners. lie said I have to aslc your Worships to grant a summons against the Milford Improvement Commissioners under the Act, 1857. Certain powers were given by that act in cases where a loan has been borrowed to a certain amount, I thiuk £ 2,000. In the present instance I think above £ 3,000 has been bor- rowed, and has not been paid. I have to ask your Worships to issue a summons against the Commissioners to show cause why a receiver should not be appointed for the purpose of having the interest and debt properly settled. The summons was ordered to issue. ASSAULT ON THE POLICE. Thomas Jennings, a tinker, residing at Burton, was charged with having assaulted Police Constable Wil- liams, (No. 10 of the County Constabulary), in the exe- cution of his duty on the 15th of July. The defendant said the policeman caught hold of him and both fell down. P.O. Williams (No. 10) deposed: On the 15th of July, I accompanied P. C. Williams, No. 8, to Freystrop to apprehend a prisoner. We had done so, and returning. When about half way the Middle Hill, we heard cries of Murder.' No. 8 told me to go back. I did so, and the first thing I saw was the prisoner striking his wife he did so several times about the head. A gentleman passing at the time desired me to go between them, and I went up, and said What are you doing.' He imme- diately took hold of me and threw me down. I managed to get up on top of him and P. C. No. 8 came to my assistance, leaving bis prisoner on the hill. We hand- cuffed Jennings. He said he would not walk. We called a cart, and got him into it. Ho was no sooner in the cart than he tried to smash the handcuffs over the wheel. I said he must not do that, when he put his head between my legs and tried to throw me over the cart. While I was balancing over the cart 1 took out my staff, and gave him a crack over the head, and he fell out into the road. We tried to get him into the cart again, when he said he would walk. .Crcss-examined: I did not knock you down first. P.C. John Williams (No. 8): I was present at Middle Bill on the loth of July, in company with P.C. No. 10. f We hpard a female call Murder." I told No. 10 to go back, and I remained with the other prisoner, who was in my custody. When I saw Jennings throw him, I went to his assistance. Prisoner was in the valley be- tween the two hills, and I could not see him when I heard the cry for assistance. After No. 10 went back, 1 saw the prisoner's wife running towards High Freys- trop, I saw prisoner follow her, and strike her several times on the head. I saw No. 10 running after him, and getting between him and his wife. I saw him make a grip at the constable, and throw him right over. Just before I got there, the constable had shifted from under him. but the prisoner would not release his hold. I struck him twice in the face with my fist, and then he let go. We handcuffed him, and he refused to walk. He lay in the read on his back. He was put into the cart, and I handed to the last witness my staff to defend himself if required. Ihe prisoner tried to snap the haadcuffs. The constable said he must not do that. He tried to throw the constable out of the cart: the con- stable drew his staff, and knocked him on the head. He did not fall out in the road, because I caught him in my arms. He was very quiet after he was struck. He lay on the ground four or five minutes as if he was stunned. He then said he would walk, I left my prisoner on the hill, while I went to the constable's assistance. James Picton, of Freystrop, deposed that he heard the prisoner's wife call out for assistance. He saw P.C. No. 10 coming down the road a,; fast as be could run, and seizing the prisoner. A scuffle took place, and both fell, the policeman being underneath. P.C. No. 8 came up and tried to get the prisoner to release his hold of the other constable, and struck him twice in the face with his fist. He saw the prisoner handcuffed, and put in the cart, but he did not see anything of what took place afterwards. Sarith James and George Morgan gave corroborative testimony. The prisoner said that when the policeman laid hold of him they both fell down. He wanted to go bail for the man who had been taken in enstody, and his wife would not let him. They quarrelled over it, and :he shoved him in the face, and he gave her a few slap». He had no quarrel with the policeman, for just before he and No. 8 had had a glass of ale together. No. 8 struck him in the face on the ground till he was running with blood, and the other man knocked him on the head with his staff, stunning him with the ilow, and cutting open his head. He did not try to break the handcuffs; if he had attempted to do so, there would have been a mark upon his wrists. After lie was brought to town, the doctor bad a difficulty in stopping the blocd. Thomas Itetigan, called by the prisoner, deposed: I was at the public-house at Middle Hill. I saw the prisoner coming down the hill from Haverfordwest. We went into the public-house, and had a few half gallons of porter. When I came out, the prisoner wanted to go bail for the man who was taken into custody. His wife was not willing, and she beat him. He gave her two r slapi-. The constable caught hold of him, and both fell on the ground. P.C. No. 8 hit him several times with bis fist. They put the handcuffs on him, and put him into the cart. P. C. No. 8 gave his staff to the constable, saying 'if Tom says anything, hit his brains out.' The prisoner said he would rather walk than go in the cart, and that he was not drunk. P.C. No 10 hit him with the club, and prisoner tell out into the road. Prisoner f lay there ten minutes, and could not speak. The porter L at the public-house was drunk by myself, prisoner, three other men, and a few women. I did not hear prisoner's ? wife call out 'Murder.' 1 In cross-examination witness said: I did not see the 3 prisoner attempt to break the handcuffs. I did not go to } my cart for a life preserver. I do not carry one or the I 4 likes of it.' 3 The Bench ordered the prisoner to pay a fine of Is and costs, amounting to Xi 9, 3d, at the same time expressing > the opinion that too much violence had been used by the [ police towards the prisoner. [ ASSAULT. I Ann Powell, of Llanstadwell, was charged with assault- i ing Eliza Price. The defendant said she struck the complainant because [ she said she had stolen a handkerchief. After she hit I her the complainant struck her with a stick, which she (defendant) took from her, and threw away. I E'.iza Price deposed that she did not call the defendant 3 a thief, but asked another person a question respecting a handkerchief, and the defendant heard her and struck a her. 1 The Bench dismissed the case, remarking that it should neTer have been brought to Court. ;6 DEATH OF THE REV W. R. ROGERS. We regret to announce the death of the Rev W. R. Rogers, Wesleyan Minister (formerly of this town), which took place at Merthyr Tydvil on Saturday evening, tb, 11th instant. Mr Rogers was well known to most of OUI readers during his three years residence as superintendent minister at Haverfordwest, His many cxcel lent quftli tif,, found him numerous friends outside the pale of his own church. As a pastor he was beloved and respected throughout the circuit for his Christian virtues. His sound judgment, his unbending integrity, his iru easing diligence, his warm, social, and winning deposit; and his nobleness of mind, will long be affectionhtvl v re- membered, and his loss deeply and universally deplored. He was cut off in the midst of his work, and was ill bu: for about a fortnight, and only reckoned dangerously so two or three days before his death, which was caused by a carbuncle on thp back of the neck. Mr Rogers was born in 1810, and entered the Wesleyan ministry in 1836 He laboured with great diligence and success for about ten years as Missionary in the West Indies. On his return he travelled with acceptance in many of the most important circuits in England. During the last four years of his life he held the office of Chairmnn of the Swansea District, for which his tho- rough business habits and competent knowledge of the doctrines and polity of Methodism eminently adapted him. As a prcaclier he was richly evangelical in senti- ment es well as lucid in style, and was distinguished by beauty of illustration and fervent earnestness. His ser- mons were often delivered with tender pathos, which at times rose into persuasive eloquence, and left a deep and lasting impression upon the hearts of his bearers. In the I interest which he manifested for the young of his congre- gation he exceeded most ministers. He has left a wi'e and eleven children to mourn the loss of a fond husband and an affectionate father. His funeral took place at Merthyr Tydvil on Tuesday morning, and was attended by a vast concourse of people of ail denominations, who met to pr»y their lart token of respect to one who, during bis shoit residence amongbt them, had acquired the love ami esteem of 111: classes. A large rcumher of carriages aeconi; atiit d tho funeral, and every house and shop along the rout, WHS closed. The service was read by the Itev E Thnrlcy, Wesleyan minister at Brecon, The funeral sermon was preached in the Wesleyan Chapel in thir- town on Sunday evening, by the Rev W. Watson.

MISSIONS.—Sermons will be preached in the parish church of St Mary, Tonby, on Sunday next, in behalf of the Society fur the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, and a meeting will be held in the Infant School on Monday evening for the same object, when the chair will be taken at seven p.m. THE INDBPENDENT CHAPEL, SARD IS, SAUVDERSFOOT. -Several interesting services have been held during the past week at the Independent Chapel, at Swrdis, in aid of the funds required for liquidating the cost of the almost re erection of the building. The chapel of S/n dis, which was one of the oldest nonconformist places of WI rship in the neighborhood, has lately been show- ing unmislakf.able signs of decay. The Rev. D. Mathias, minister of Saundersfoot, determined (with the assistance of friends) to rebuild it. Consequently, in the month of November last, the good work began with indefatigable zeal: it was pushed forward in spite of every difficulty,, and "n Wednesday the 8th ins;, it was formally opened f>r public worship. New doors, windows, roof, pews, plastering, &c., form the principal items of the ex- penditure which amounted to about £160, to which may be added some J620 for work supplied gratuitously. Before the opening services of Wednesday Mr Mathias had succeeded in collecting some £70, leaving a balance of X90 to be provided for. On Wednesday morning, at 10.30 a.m., sermons were delivered by the Rev. J. M. Jones, of Narberth; at 2 p.m., by the Rev. U. R.' Thomas, of Redland Park, Bristol; and in the evening by the Rev Dr. Thomas, of Stockwell, London. On the following Sunday sermons were preached at 10.30 a m., by the Rev. T. Griffiths, of Si. Florence; at 2 p.m., by the Rev T. Davies, B. A. Goldaming, and the Rev H. Davies, of Middle Hill, Haverfordwest; at 6 p.m., by the Rev L. James, of Carwan and the Rev J. GriffithF, of Newton. The whole of the services were conducted by the Rev D. Mathias, of Saundersfoot. The amounts collected at the services were over £40. Promises to the extent of £ 20 have been since made, which will leave only a balance of some X30 to be met. We hope Mr Mathias (who has alone made himself re- sponsible for the undertaking) will speedily be able to place his chapel entirely out of debt, a position he cer- tainly deserves. The thanks of the neighbourhood are due to the rev. gentleman and the friends who have eo liberally given their contributions of money, time, and material.

Collections were made at the close of each service, which, in the aggregate, amounted to the munificent sum of above JE301. A diuuer was provided in the large sohool room beneath the chapel^ at which the Rev. D. Salmon, minister of the chapel, presided. This beautiful ecclesiastical struc- ture, in the Gothic style, which is one of the chief ornaments of the town, was commenced in August, 1867, a he architect being the Rev.
